Cunk’s Quest for Meaning - Coming to BBC Two

Following the worldwide acclaim of "Cunk on Earth," the intrepid documentarian Philomena Cunk (portrayed by Diane Morgan) returns with her most audacious undertaking yet: a cosmic expedition in pursuit of the ultimate truth – the meaning of life.

As humanity grapples with existential questions amidst a rapidly changing world, Cunk's Quest for Meaning promises to delve into the depths of philosophy, science, and human existence itself. In this extended special for BBC Two and BBC iPlayer, Philomena will tackle a plethora of profound concepts, from Quantum Physics to Existentialism, Nihilism to Hedonism, and everything in between. Alongside exploring the mysteries of the universe, she will scrutinize the lives and legacies of history's greatest thinkers and innovators, offering her unique insights into their contributions – and perhaps a few witty asides about inspirational kitchen decor.

Embarking on a journey spanning Europe and venturing to America for the first time (pending visa approval), Philomena will engage with leading experts and scholars to dissect the fundamental questions of existence. From pondering the nature of life itself to questioning the purpose of our pursuits, no stone will be left unturned in her quest for enlightenment – and a satisfying lunch.

In her trademark style, Philomena Cunk shares her anticipation for the adventure, albeit with a characteristic touch of bemusement. Meanwhile, Charlie Brooker, the mastermind behind the project, offers a typically candid response amidst his busy schedule.

Jon Petrie, BBC's Director of Comedy Commissioning, expresses excitement for the return of Cunk and the continuation of her global impact. With Diane Morgan and Charlie Brooker at the helm once again, audiences can expect a comedic exploration of profound subjects with the trademark wit and intelligence that have made Cunk a phenomenon.

Prepare to join Philomena Cunk on her exhilarating journey as "Cunk's Quest for Meaning" makes its debut on BBC Two and BBC iPlayer later this year, with international audiences catching the adventure on Netflix.
